Improving Communication Skills of School Library Supervisors at the University of Michigan. Narrative Evaluation Report on the Institute for Advanced Study for Librarians.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor. School of Library Sciences.
A two-week institute, funded under Title II-B of the Higher Education Act, focused on the process of communication as the vital interface with all aspects of the school library supervisor's role. "School library supervisor" was intended to include any school librarian with supervisory or management responsibility beyond the single building level. The thirty participants who were selected represented a wide geographic distribution. Many facets of the supervisor's role were explored in group discussion or individual conferences, formal presentations dealt with group dynamics, speech, writing, listening, and media design. The program included participation training, a method of group process which emphasizes rolePrelated discussion. Principles of media design were illustrated through simulation projects. Program evaluation consisted of participant comments and a post-test on communications. Much of this report consists of the institute's instructional materials and bibliography. (Author/SL)
